At this point, Conan O’Brien has had a bunch of guests on his Clueless Gamer segment, where he, a self-professed video game novice, plays some hot new game with celebrity accompaniment. But he’s never had a guest as 4/20-friendly as his partner in the latest segment: Wiz Khalifa. The two got together to play Gears of War 4 (which we thought was fantastic), and while Conan thought Khalifa’s chill vibes would mellow out the chaotic, gory experience of the game, but regardless if who you’re with, war is intense.
Smoking blunt in mouth, Khalifa showed great enthusiasm as he (mostly incompetently) waddled his way around the battlefield, and per usual, Conan isn’t going professional anytime soon either. There’s one career change Conan could smoothly make today, though: hip-hop hype man. He gave Khalifa a taste of it, putting on an old-timey affectation and saying, “That’s right, there he goes! Laying it down, Wiz style, see? Here comes a real corker from Wiz! Here we go now! Not too loud, everyone, settle down.”
That might not get a crowd too hyped up, especially not if Aaron Bleyaert’s explanation of the game’s lore follows. He clearly knows his stuff, but Conan wasn’t having it, to the point where he finally lit up the joint that Khalifa gave him earlier. Does that make Conan the first late-night host to smoke weed on the air? Regardless, Gears of War 4 comes out on October 11 on Xbox One, so if you’re not sure if you want to pick it up, check out the video above, and our review of the game should also assist you in the decision-making process.
